    Only issue was the Ravioli serving was on the small side. But food, staff and atmosphere was very enjoyable. Birthday celebration was fabulous. Thankyou :)

    Good Italian food. Some dishes' portion could be larger for the price charged. Got taken to the table quickly and sat outside which was good as the weather was good.

    My drink order was incorrect. People who came in later received their meals earlier than we did. The staff were pleasant, but as they didn't have their own sections, were often confused. Management needs to be re-evaluated. One of my guests was responding to the manger, and he walked off before she finished her response. We will not be going back.

    Thank you for your feedback, that we are taking very serious. However you forgot to mention on the night we had 200 guests dining at the same time, leaving for the football match at the Marvel Stadium after dinner. I am assuming so did you. We would like to invite you to our restaurant at another time. Regards Management

    Pasta wasn’t the greatest, quiet bland and basic. Only the pizza was good.

About the restaurant

Teacher’s Pet

This place is so good that even the mayor of Melbourne loved it. That’s right, he awarded Renzo’s an honorary small business certificate, to thank them for their long term services plating up food in Melbourne. Renzo’s bar enjoys a sprawling view of the waterfront, with the colourful and lively goings-on of the strip. Inside is a vast dining room, not too posh but with a definite elegance. The dark furniture and shelves of fancy wines give the place a lovely atmosphere to dine it. The staff and typical patrons fill the space with a friendly vibe. Renzo’s are open for three meals a day, as well as casual drinks at the bar with finger foods and cakes. What’s a European dinner without crusty delicious bread? The mains menu has an awesome herby selection of Bruschettas and focaccia to enjoy with your food. Pasta dishes like the Ravioloni di pesce bianco, a fish and white wine number, steal the show with their outstanding flavours. The strawberry panna cotta is a popular choice for dessert and it’s delicious. Renzo’s can guarantee an excellent experience, and so can the mayor.

Best dish: Ravioloni di pesce bianco
